As effortless as it seems, Instagramming is hard work. You could follow the numerous tutorials online that teach you how to up your posting game, but if all hope is lost, this hotel business suggests you should outsource the work.
Ibis, an AccorHotels-owned chain from Switzerland, has launched a package that leases “social media sitters” who will snap and upload photos on the behalves of guests.
The service, which is called ‘Relax, We Post’, is available at Ibis’ hotels in Geneva and Zurich, and lets you rent an Instagram influencer to prettify your grid for as low as ₣90 (US$90.02).
Interested visitors are required to leave the hashtag, ‘#postedbysocialmediasitter’, in their posts, as well as hand over their Instagram passwords to their “sitters;” but worry not about having your account controlled by someone else—guests can brief their helpers on the sort of aesthetic they would like to go for.
The service is currently on trial, however, and will end this weekend. Check out some posts that were created by hired “sitters,” and find out more about the program here.

🎄🎪🎠✨dieses Wochenende muss ich mich nicht um mein Instagram kümmern. Das handelt meine IBIS 'Instasitterin' - ist der Instagram Account ein Baby? I don't know - auf jedenfall finde ich es praktisch wenn man sich nicht darum kümmern müsste und trotzdem super Content drauf hat. Ich war mit meinem Sitter am Weihnachtsdorf in Zürich und wir haben dieses Bild gemacht. Wie gefällt es euch? Würdet ihr auch mal jemand bei euch haben der eure Posts & Stories macht? #postedbysocialmediasitter
